CHICAGO -- After a lost weekend in chilly New York, the Cubs head home to the warm and friendly confines of Wrigley Field, where the wind is expected to blow out.

They’re down two games to none but have games 3, 4 and 5 at home if necessary.

The bars along Clark Street in Wrigleyville were packed again last night with fans hoping to flood the streets in celebration.  But the Cubs cold bats prevented that.

In anticipation of the home games, new parking restrictions and streets closures go into effect Tuesday.

Both sides of Addison are closed to parking from Halsted to Southport, along with both sides of Clark from Belmont to Irving Park.  Racine and Sheffield will also be no parking north of Belmont.



Sheffield and Waveland adjacent to the ballpark will be closed to all traffic.
